Foot Reflexology Improves Circulation in Whole Body
Try traditional Chinese foot reflexology in Vancouver to improve sleep, mobility, and sports performance, or to reduce stress, muscle tension, and ‘kicking leg’ at night. Foot Reflexology isn’t just a normal relaxation style 'foot massage'. Our massage therapists understand that the primary focus of reflexology is to stimulate the various acupressure points found on the toes, ball, sole, heel, top of foot, calves and lower legs to improve the flow of Qi and blood supply throughout one’s entire body.
The soles of your feet are the farthest part of the body from your heart. If the Qi and blood circulation in your feet produces obstacles, it is easy to suffer from poor metabolism and decreased function of whole body including tissues and vital organs. The feet have many acupressure points and nerve endings which need attention to optimize physical and mental health and well being.
The Benefits of Foot Reflexology
The benefits of foot reflexology are many. Even a single 50 minute reflexology session ($42) can help to unblock Qi in an area of the body other than the feet that is causing a health problem somewhere else. Examples include:
- stimulating the liver/gallbladder points/lines which helps an indigestion problem; or
- stimulating the kidney points found in the feet and lower leg lines which can relieve bladder issues; or
- stimulating the endocrine reflex points to help balance blood sugar levels for people with type II diabetes.
Of course, the feet handle the body’s weight and people often ignore their feet to the extent that they fail to notice fatigue. One of the greatest benefits of a single session of reflexology is a significant reduction of stress, and improved sleep the night after the reflexology.
The benefits of foot reflexology become much greater with regular treatments, including:
- return organ function to a normal state which reduces stress and can eliminate blood pressure issues;
- return one’s digestion, lymph and waste elimination systems to a normal state of operation;
- reduce chronic pain issues, insomnia, circulatory issues so that you have better metabolism and higher energy levels throughout your day;
- calm your nerves: reflexology is also a process (sit, soak, towel, put phone away :-), breathe, relax and accept the minor pain of unblocking the Qi) which makes our body relax naturally, which plays a role in calming the mind and replenishing the breath - eliminating temporary anxiety;
- improved work performance with better relaxation and concentration;
- improved sports performance (any sport which requires strained use of lower body such as for runners, bikers, joggers, cyclists, skiers and skaters - hockey players, soccer players, football players and tennis players!!
